CLEVELAND — American Greetings latest greeting card invention, the “Getting Wiggy” collection, is full of sidesplitting personality. The new cards offer surprises, music, animals and a humorous formula to a brand-new type of birthday card that adds up to a comical one-stop-shop for giving friends and family a memorable birthday experience.
“Humorous cards are especially popular for birthdays, and the addition of an unexpected reveal is the ‘icing on top’ – or in this case, it’s the hilarious wig on top!” said Carol Miller, vice president of corporate innovation at American Greetings. “The ‘Getting Wiggy’ collection is eye-catching, interactive and unforgettable.”
She explained that “Getting Wiggy” is a new card line that really brings the laughs. “Simply slide the tab up and around the character to reveal their wacky hairdo and silly song. With photo animals donning fun hairstyles, playful lettering and funny sentiments, “Getting Wiggy” is sure to bring out the party animal in everyone. Designs in this wild collection include a rainbow-haired pig who’s ready to squeal with birthday excitement, a fierce fashionista kitty with pretty pink locks, a punky pup complete with a spikey blue style, and a patriotic eagle saluting a legendary birthday with a red, white and blue ‘do.”
